|Or at least your terminology.
Bonking occurs after prolonged exercise when you deplete muscle/liver glycogen and probably experience a drop in blood glucose leading to an inability to maintain any kind of intensity and associated mental symptoms (often dizziness, confusion, elevated sense of effort, etc.).
Hitting the wall or Hunger Knock are often used to describe this.
OTOH, you can go hard until a point when you just can't maintain that pace and have to back off. In bike racing this is often described as Popping or Cracking and is usually a rather sudden occurance.
